Event Description Join us on Wednesday, December 8 at 7 p.m. for a talk on Impermanence with the Buddhist Monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery as part of the Impermanence exhibition. "Death is certain and the time of death is uncertain. Before one faces death, one must be well-practiced and prepared. Buddha Shakyamuni taught, “the nature of all compounded phenomena is one of impermanence.” One must be constantly mindful of this. If one has a clear understanding of pervading nature of impermanence, then one can enter the gate of Buddha’s teaching and begin their spiritual practice.” Impermanence exhibition: Dec 5-Feb 13, 2022

Event Description For four days, the monks from the Gaden Shartse Monastery will create a sand mandala in PHES Gallery as part of the Impermanence exhibition. Mandala means literally "that which extracts the essence." There are many different types of mandala used by Tibetan Buddhists. They can be created in either two or three dimensions. Each sand mandala represents the architectural layout of the entire palace of a specific deity. The sand is applied very precisely by the gentle tapping of a sand-filled metal cone that has had its tip removed. The Master must be the first to initiate the mandala and does so by being the first to pour the sand. The outline of the mandala is defined by the holding of a string that is dipped in chalk and then 'snapped' in the appropriate place.
